Hope everyone is well! After a wild and windy day yesterday that dumped almost 6 inches of rain in a few hours, today was beautiful!
Some schools don’t open till Monday, so they are enjoying an extra week at the beach.
I am boycotting Fall, it is just too soon for me to think about it. Not a hint of it in the air, the summer annuals are going full steam.
Tonight I did a blue and white check.
At five pm, when I finally got around to doing a table, the clouds moved in, so the pictures aren’t as bright as they should be. I do not edit my pictures, I know, I should, LOL, but I don’t do this to earn a living, and they are close enough!
Blue and white check to the floor tablecloth, rattan and check mat from CTS clearance last year, .49, white charger, Noritake outlet, blue and white check dinner, CTS, small white plate. Flatware by Cambridge via CTS.
The navy footed soup bowls are from WSonoma Outlet. They are marked 10, don’t know who would pay that, I got them for 2.00 on sale.
The centerpiece is a picket fence planter with 3 Ball Jars. I filled them with white Pee Gee Hydrangea, risking being stung by the MANY bees that were feasting on them!
Anything for you! :)
Two smaller picket fence votive holders are on each side.
Picket fence napkin holders ,from my friend Gail, hold a checked napkin and a soup spoon. They are new.
I like a round soup spoon and they are hard to find at a reasonable price. I have some, but not enough for a crowd. I got them at a Restaurant supply store for less than 1.00 each.
The blue stems are by Dansk.
That’s my table for tonight, uncluttered enough for dh not to ask why there is so much STUFF on the table!
